Create Your Own Awesome Google Calendar To-Do List
Google calendar is there for scheduling and your to-do list app is there to mark down tasks. With the introduction of Reminders by Google, you now will have a to-do list integrated with Google Calendar. Reminders for Google Calendar is a great feature available on your mobile app and the web.
How Reminders Work
Reminders work by pressing the plus icon when you want to create a new event on the calendar for the mobile app, you will now be presented with another option for “Reminder”. Press that when you are ready to create a new reminder.
- Reminders assist you with creating better tasks by using what Google knows about you.
- Reminders remain on your calendar until they are marked as done.
- There are preset templates for text, email, call, read, meet, make reservations, cancel reservations, watch, return, and check in. Each template is designed to find information on Google helping to provide your tasks with more context.
- You have the ability to create new reminders by using non-Calendar Google apps. Use Google Keep, Google Inbox, or try voice commands with OK Google.
Add your tasks to Google calendar so they are scheduled rather than placed on a seemingly endless list where they are less likely to get finished. Increase the chances of following through on your tasks by scheduling them. Google Calendar prompts you for a date and time when adding your new task, so it will alert you.
You are more likely to complete small tasks is larger due to the ability to review our tasks. It is easier because your calendar and to-do list are kept visual and in the same space.
Why Use Google Calendar for Your To-Do List?
Even with Google Keep handling task, Calendar is the better option for several reasons. One of these reasons is being able to add from anywhere. When having to take several steps to add tasks, many of never bother. With most Google apps allowing us to add Reminders, we are able to reduce how many steps we need to take.
Another great reason to use Calendar is ability to review our tasks. To better our list of task, we must review and re-prioritize them. While having both our unscheduled tasks and scheduled tasks put in one place, you have an easier time reviewing and considering what should be done next.
The calendar can work in a similar way as Trello when accomplishing tasks, by allowing you a visual glance of everything that needs to be accomplished today. This also lets you view unscheduled tasks, letting you have an overview of your entire day.
Reminders with Google Calendar is synced across every platform, helping you be more productive every day!
